The hotel is located in via Nazionale, near República square (subway). The staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room, 507, was nice, modern,whith very confortable beds, plasma tv 32", nice bathroon, etc. But small for a five stars.
The breakfast isn`t the best.
Loved the design
Great location, clean and nice staff! The price is very high, but this is a real 4* hotel, with service of 4* hotel. Breakfast was good.
Very stylish, well located
We spent two nights in the La Griffe and it seems, that it has been renovated only shortly before - very stylish and modern inside: Black marble lobby and dark grey corridors is surely intended to look noble, we found it simply a bit dark. The room we stayed in was luckily more friendly coloured, also quite stylish but comfortable.
The service has been excellent and friendly. Big advantage in my opinion: It's easy to get there (5minutes walk from Termini station) and easy to get anywhere in historic Rome if you're fit to walk a few kilometers.
Points off: Via Nazionale is noisy, but rooms have well-isolated windows. Only it has been start of the heating period and we were not able to adjust the temperature in a way that would suite Middle European likings. So we had to sleep with open windows - loud again...
Additonally there's a church in the neighborhood (high probability of that in Rome!). But it's Anglican (low probability in Rome!) and rings the bells only once or twice a day during the week and only more often on Sunday
I stayed at this hotel for three nights and loved it. The staff was helpful and courteous and went out of their way to help us. The room was clean and the beds were cozy. Couldn't ask for more! I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Stayed at the La Griffe for one night on returning to Rome from a week travelling. On a Saturday night (the famous notte bianco - white night), found the staff to be excellent and very attentive, allowing us to check in two hours before standard time. The room overlooking the via Nazionale, was very quiet, beautiful, very contemporary, luxuriously decorated and spacious. The bathroom whilst smaller than the hotel we had stayed in the week previous whilst in Rome, was great with a top class spec and design. Having visited Rome on many occasions and being familiar with the vagaries in hotel class and standards, I am recommending this hotel to anyone who will listen. I found the staff to be extra attentive and genuinely welcoming, booking a great retaurant and club for us with instant understanding and effeciency, the views from the roof top terrace were great also.
Star Trek in Style and the Service is just as Cold!
We got bumped from our oversold 3 Star Hotel, Hotel Europa, to this "brand new 5 Star Luxury Hotel." What a joke! First of all, everyone that works there has major attitude, you can tell there has been zero training as to how to make guests feel welcome and respected. After a cold greeting we were escorted to our rooms with no windows!! Who wants to travel to ROME and stay in 5 Star hotel, with now windows! I take that back, there was a fire escape window facing inward with a view of exposed pipes, air ducts and escape stairs. The design is very high-tech, lots of metal and dark colors, like the Standard Hotel- not reminscent of Rome in any sense. OH, then there's the restaurants! Of course the casual restaurant where you eat breakfast is in the basement with you guessed it, no windows. The roof-top restaurant however does have potential, the view is nice and the food and service acceptable. Oh yes, one day the elevator dropped a floor with my parents in it, they had to climb out of the elevator on a ladder. All the staff did was offer my mother a glass of water and blame the elevater company. Lastly, we checked our bags w/ the bell desk while we toured around for a few hours on our last day. When we returned we were shocked to find our bags sitting in a hallway between a stairwell and a service entrance, totally unattended and out of sight of the front desk! We couldn't get out of that hotel fast enough! We now affectionally refer to it as the "Nothing But Grief Hotel."
Excellent value - very American and student friendly
Spent 9 days here with a group of American high schools students in June, 2001 - nice, clean rooms, some of which were HUGE; accommodating staff that helped me keep an eye on my young charges!
Liberty Hotel, Rome
Had a great five days in Rome. Plenty to see and do. However, the Liberty Hotel in Via Nazionale was the most awful 3 star hotel I have every stayed in. Certainly not worth the money.

... able to wander in the biggest church in the world because it is an amazing place. Of course when we entered the Vatican Museum we had actually left Italy and entered the smallest country in the world - Vatican City. Vatican City was declared an independent country in 1929 and today has 800 residents and 400 citizens and of course a zero birth rate! Even though I have been through the Vatican Museum several times before, it is now ...
... a single piece of red granite taken from Egypt. We walk in to the throng of another thousand tourist and try to take in the sights.
We are on a mission - now we are seeking Bernini's "Ecstasy of Saint Teresa", which is in a small church called Santa Maria della Vittoria. Surprisingly its not to hard to find and is in the general direction of the Spanish Steps from the Pantheon. The statue is high up in a small chapel and looks a little grimy in the light ...
... Colosseo we passed the statue of the unknown soldier and that building was stunning and massive.
We continued to walk (about 40 min total) and passed other neat things. My favorite because it was so bizarre was the "cat sanctuary". This is an area of ruins that sit below ground level where all of the stray cats hang out. Don't ask me why but they really were everywhere! Our final step was to cross the Tiber river. Our campus is located along the river and ...
... chatting away. Too funny (well for me it was, Carrie was feeling a little uncomfortable!) Next up was Basilica Sancti Petri and the Vatican which I was really excited to see. We waited in line, followed the masses (no pun intended) through security and wait for it.....got turned away. Yup, after all that walking and all that waiting, Carrie and I were turned away at the door. No, not because I'm a divorcée or because Carrie may (or may ...
